Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST)

This information is subject to change. Please check with Admissions and Records at 775.327.2059 for the most up to date information. For a description of the CBAPE program, refer to our College Credit by Examination page.

Before 2004, the DSST exams were available only to military personnel through DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support), a division of the Department of Defense that provides educational support to military members. In 2004, the tests were acquired by Prometric and became available to anyone seeking college credit including college students, adult learners, high school students, and military personnel.

The following DSST examinations have been reviewed. Upon receipt of an official score report from Prometric, the Admissions and Records Office will grant credit as specified below. A grade of S will be assigned:

General Anthropology (494) 47 ANTH Elective 3
Business Mathematics (812) 400 MATH General Education* 3
Fundamentals of Algebra (424) 400 MATH 96 0
Principles of Statistics (450) 400 STAT 152 3
Technical Writing (820) 46 ENG Elective 3

*While not directly equivalent to any GBC math course, this will meet the math requirement for programs that accept MATH 120.
